2009 SEAT Altea Range Receives Minor Facelift

Along with the updated Leon hatchback and the new Exeo Sport Tourer, SEAT will also take the covers off the facelifted Altea range that consists of the standard model, the long-wheelbase XL and the Freetrack crossover in Geneva. Since the Altea MPV is a Leon spin-off, it comes to no surprise that all three variants feature similar styling changes with the hatchback. These include the new grille and headlamp treatment plus a larger rear window which now wraps the corners of the car.

Likewise, the Altea's interior has been updated with a revised instrument panel, central console and door panel trim and materials. Under the hood, the 2009 Altea continues to be offered with a range 10 different engines choices, five petrol and five diesel all of which have been updated in way or another according to SEAT.
